Hello From New Orleans

Hi everyone. I haven't had a motocycle since my dirtbike some 25 years ago. Within the last year I've gotten the itch to get a bike for my relatively short commute and to play with on the weekends. I knew I wanted a dual sport bike for the flexability but also knew the majority of time would be on road. The Versys seems to fit the bill perfectly and I can't wait until I get on. I'm taking a basic rider course at the end of Sept. and would like to get the bike shortly afterward. Looks like it may be pretty good timing for the 2009 release.

Looking forward to getting my Versys!

+1 on the reasons to buy the V. Bought mine in June and love it. Here's my story on how I found the Versys. http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...read.php?t=525 Hope you guys in the Louisiana lowlands make it through the approaching storm in good shape!

mksmith, lowflyer, I get to Waveland or a fairly regular basis and it'd be great to hook up with some other V's to cruise down the beach. Well, that is once I get my V :-)

I'm heading to Destin this evening to avoid the storm and just to keep my original Labor Day plans, y'all be safe, and keep the V's protected!

Thanks Miguelito, It's looking like NOLA will be spared the worst that Gustav could bring. I'm hoping for the best, for everyone that has recently just finished rebuilding and moving back to their homes recently. Personally, being 30miles west of NOLA I escaped Kartina with barely a scratch, so no worries on my behalf.
